iOS Build An iTunes Search App Building the User Interface Displaying Stubbed Data

Why did you create a Cocoa class for SearchResultsDataSource?

Wouldn't creating a swift class, importing UIKit, and adding NSObject as the parent class achieve the same thing?

Yes, that's another way of doing it.

I think it ultimately comes down to the developer's preference. If you like to set up your classes through the GUI then you can do it the way Pasan did it, or if you prefer to write things out yourself then you can do it the way you described.
